It’s the last Friday in September (how’d that happen!!) so it’s time for 5 randoms from my world:
1 ) Had Hubb’s Step-Dad, Grandpa John, over for supper last night ~ we’d been planning to do so for a while but our weeks are jammed & weekends are often full, too ~ so a week night seemed like the best choice. The roast went into the crock-pot before I left for work with Hubbs commenting how he had to smell it all day. At no surprise to either of us, Grandpa arrived early with a bag full of Glad Ware (I know how you cook), sporting a fresh haircut, a new shirt and a whiff of after-shave. The visit lasted several hours and we sent him home with leftovers, peanut butter cookies and more. Upon his arrival he announced how he doesn’t eat much anymore … but after the meal he commented that “he hadn’t eaten that much in a while!” 🙂
- It was another reminder that sharing a meal around a table is good for all and that small things mean so much.
2 ) As I often do at this time of year, I took today off. I had every intention of cleaning out my closet, organizing and more. Instead I slept in, drank a pot of coffee, made my bed and am still in my jammies 🙂
- Sometimes the best “to do” list is the one in the trash.
3 ) While answering questions from Grandpa about smart phones Hubbs deferred to me as “the Lover all things Techie” and he’s right, I do love me some Technology. A hearty conversation followed about the pluses and minuses, pitfalls and pointers, apps and trackers. In the spirit of tech fun, I showed him my newest gadget ~ the FitBit Charge2, in purple, of course. (( I’ve had the FitBit Flex for years but it’s starting to lose mojo – and with my recent foray into rebounding, I wanted a better tracker plus I missed having a watch )) By the end of the conversation he’d settled on keeping his flip phone (the one that’s rarely with him or charged. )
- Everyone has their own interests and we can learn from each other ~ Grandpa’s into guns (Military Man) I’m not, but if I ever had questions I know just who to go to!
4 ) Next week brings October and, at work, we’re setting meetings into December and January. Time has a way of racing ahead, doesn’t it? I chatted yesterday with Pat, our UPS driver, who shared the exciting news of his retirement November 1st. “Not doing another Holiday Season” he announced. His glee was as broad as the smile on his face. As much as I try to be in the “now” and be ready for what’s next, I do think sometimes you just have to Namastay – see below:
- Namastay in my cozy clothes all day 🙂
5 ) And then there’s this ~ a wee Scottish Grandma reading “The Wonky Donkey” — be ready to laugh … hard.
- Laughter makes everything better!
Thanks for reading my Random 5 this week ~ care to share yours?
